Ghost had his first session with Dawn yesterday. It was pure awesomeness! I had so many "Aha!" moments, and some "I've been doing it all wrong!" moments. I knew that Ghost was smart, but Dawn was able to teach him a few new things very quickly WHILE she was talking to me. I was also excited to hear that Dawn has experience training service dogs. I'm looking forward to exploring that more. I'll definitely be using her services again, and recommending her to friends! :)
Execellan help at a fraction of the price. I looked into other trainers that cost 10 times as much for the same advice. Regardless of who you use, if you are not willing to put in the work your dog will not get the training needed. All my boys have a hand now in training our dog and she has accepted the training and each day becomes more behaved than the day before.
Shana and Will have helped me gain confidence in training my problem dog. This isn't our first time using a trainer, but with Grateful Dawg, we are actually facing my dog's fears and learning how to control his behavior when he is in an uncomfortable situation rather than totally avoiding his triggers. We have been so impressed with our results, and we are only on our third session!
Jennifer of Family Paws has been amazing! We consulted with her prior to the birth of our first child and learned so much in just one visit. Since then, she has helped us via multiple email exchanges not only with our dog training needs, but also just by being so supportive of our birth plans and following up to see how we've been doing. So much more than we ever expected! I have recommended her and her services to many others and highly encourage any one with changing family structures to book her services right away. Worth every penny, and then some!
I run a dog training business (sk9t.net) and at any one time can have up to 3 dozen dogs in my facility. Ellie has shown great care with larger dogs and smaller, calm and anxiety ridden, long and short haired. She took time to familiarize herself with each and do a wonderful job caring for them. I'd hire Ellie again in a heart beat. For my dogs or my clients' needs. Thanks, Ellie!
I hired Erik to train my Golden Retriever when I was referred by a friend who said he also used Erik's services and the results were impressive. So I contacted Erik in hopes that he could help my dog who had difficulty being around other dogs, was very nervous, and would constantly lick her paw. Basically my dog was a bundle of nerves. She had difficulty sitting still and trying to teach her anything seemed impossible. So I thought I would take my friends advice and give Concise K9 a try. Within a few sessions the progress was obvious. She had commands instilled in her and seemed to be proud of herself! She also finally stopped licking her paw, which was a habit she had for a while. My dog was always happy to see Erik and his interaction with her was great. I always felt comfortable leaving her with him for the lessons. I would highly recommend this man for his expertise in dog training as my dog is now a well behaved, secure girl and her good qualities shine. Erik is also a true professional and honest in his dealings.
Jackson should be writing this review since he is the one who has benefited from all of the hard work you put into him! My dog is classified as a special needs dog (seizures, psychological issues). Alisa was able to help him overcome his spinning and help build up his self confidence and esteem. He did the basic training (4 sessions, 1 hour each) and successfully learned sit, come, stay, he'll, and place. He was a challenge for sure, but she knows what she is doing and that's why the training was so successful. I can't thank her enough for what she has done for my baby. We are a much happier dog home thanks to the training! Jackson can be outside, off leash, and is trusted to be safe and to make smart decisions. Everyday with him is a treat and thankfully he gets to really be a dog now. I tell everyone (vet, dog store owners, and random people with dogs in the street!) about their spectacular work! Keep up the great work :-)
He did an excellent job and gave me great advice. Very, very helpful and spent a lot of time with me and my dog. Great service.
Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!
Excellent service provided. I have had the honor to see training sessions with Mr. McCall and it is amazing to see how he can easily train you to train your dog. I have also seen the outcome of him raising an intelligent American Bulldog, dash. The things dash was able to do after Mr. McCall worked with him would blow your mind. Dash is always loved and truly missed. Much success to your Mr. McCall.
